Habanero Egg Salad

I stirred up a wonderful batch of habanero egg-salad today. My child shared a sore throat, fever, and congestion with me, which we’re just getting over. I thought the spicy egg-salad might help. I ate it and was like, wow! This stuff is really good. All I did was mix chopped, boiled eggs with Duke’s […]
